McGonigle Hall is an athletic facility on the campus of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It opened on December 1969, with an upset win over St. John's; the venue served as the home of men's basketball until replaced in 1997 by The Apollo of Temple, a larger facility now known as the Liacouras Center. Temple women's basketball splits games between McGonigle Hall and the Liacouras Center, the gym is home to Temple women's fencing, women's gymnastics and volleyball. Due to McGonigle's small size, Temple played the majority of its games at the Palestra through 1984, when the school decided to move most of its home games to McGonigle to have a home-court advantage under coach John Chaney. Big Five games were played at the Palestra. After the Liacouras Center opened, in 2012, the University completed a $48 million renovation and expansion of Pearson and McGonigle Halls, providing additional classrooms and coaching staff offices as well as state-of-the-art men's and women's basketball practice facilities.
McGonigle Hall was named for Arthur T. McGonigle, a Temple University benefactor and pretzel magnate from Reading. For basketball events such as selected 1987, 1990, 1992 Atlantic 10 Conference men's basketball tournament games, its capacity was 3,900. Temple played a "Turn Back the Clock Game" at McGonigle Hall against Bowling Green on December 28, 2009, featuring throwback uniforms and 1980s music and concession prices

The Temple Owls are the athletic teams that represent Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The school's sports teams are called the Owls; the current athletic director is Patrick Kraft. The owl has been the mascot for Temple University since its founding in the 1880s. Temple was the first school in the United States to adopt the owl as its mascot; the owl, a nocturnal hunter, was adopted as a symbol because Temple University began as a night school for young people of limited means. Russell Conwell, Temple's founder, encouraged these students with the remark: "The owl of the night makes the eagle of the day." The Owls are members of the American Athletic Conference. Since their football team participates in the NCAA's Division I Football Bowl Subdivision; the football program was a member of the Big East Conference until its expulsion after the 2004 season due to a variety of program shortcomings. Temple played a limited MAC schedule in 2005 and 2006 before becoming an affiliated football-only member and playing a full 8-game league schedule in 2007.
The school's men's basketball team is part of the Big Five, the traditional designation for the rivalries between the Owls and their Philadelphia rivals: Penn, Saint Joseph's, La Salle. Temple considers the rivalry with St. Joe's to be the most intense in basketball. St. Joe's, considers this rivalry to be secondary to their rivalry with Villanova; the landscape of Temple sports has changed thanks to a major realignment of Division I conferences. Temple football returned to the Big East in 2012, became a full member of the renamed American Athletic Conference in July 2013, after being a full member of the A-10 since the early'80s. Temple University was among the first institutions in the United States to sponsor extracurricular athletic activities for its students. Both the football and basketball programs were inaugurated in 1894 under the direction of Coach Charles M. Williams. Temple has won four team national championships.

In 1938, the Owls, who finished with a 23–2 record, won the inaugural National Invitation Tournament by routing Colorado 60–36 in the championship final; because the NCAA Tournament was not held until the following year, Temple's NIT championship earned the Owls national title recognition. The team was retroactively named the national champion by the Helms Athletic Foundation and the Premo-Porretta Power Poll.
During the 1950s, the Temple basketball team made two NCAA Final Four appearances under legendary Head Coach Harry Litwack.

A university press is an academic publishing house specializing in academic monographs and scholarly journals. Most are nonprofit and an integral component of a large research university, they publish work, reviewed by scholars in the field. They produce scholarly works, but often have "popular" titles, such as books on religion or on regional topics; because scholarly books are unprofitable, university presses may publish textbooks and reference works, which tend to have larger audiences and sell more copies. Most university presses operate at a loss and are subsidized by their owners. Demand has fallen as library budgets are cut and the online sales of used books undercut the new book market. Many presses are experimenting with electronic publishing. Cambridge University Press and Oxford University Press are the two oldest and largest university presses in the world, they have scores of branches around the world throughout the British Commonwealth. In the United States, colonial colleges required printers to publish university catalogs, ceremonial materials, a limited number of scholarly publications.
Following the 17th-century work of Harvard College printer Samuel Green, William Hilliard of Cambridge, began publishing materials under the name "University Press" in 1802. Modern university presses emerged in the United States in the late 19th century. Cornell University started one in 1869 but had to close it down; the University of Pennsylvania Press, University of Chicago Press, University of California Press, Northwestern University Press, Columbia University Press followed. The biggest growth came after 1945 as higher education expanded rapidly. There was a leveling off after 1970. In Scotland Archie Turnbull served as the long-time director of the Edinburgh University Press, 1952-87; the British university presses had strong expansion in the 1950s and 1960s. The Edinburgh University Press became the leading Scottish academic publisher, it was famous for publishing major books on the history and literature of Scotland, by enlisting others in Scotland. By the time of independence in 1947, India had a well-established system of universities, several leading ones developed a university press.
The main areas of activity include monographs by professors, research papers and theses, textbooks for undergraduate use. However, the basic problem faced by scholarly publishers in India is the use of multiple languages, which splintered and reduced the base of potential sales; as new universities opened in Africa after 1960, some developed a press based on the European model. In Nigeria for an example, scholarly presses played a central role in shaping and encouraging intellectual efforts and gaining international attention for the product; however the established European presses Oxford University Press, dominated the market, allowing a narrow niche for new local presses such as Ibadan University Press now University Press Plc. In 2008, the Association of American University Presses has 125 member presses, of which 95 were operated by universities. Growth has been sporadic, with 14 presses established in the 1940s, 11 in the 1950s. Since 1970, 16 universities have opened presses and several have closed.
Today, the largest university press in the United States is the University of Chicago Press. University presses tend to develop specialized areas of expertise, such as regional studies. For instance, Yale publishes many art books, the Chicago and Indiana publish many academic journals, the University of Illinois press specializes in labor history, MIT Press publishes linguistics and architecture titles, Northwestern University Press publishes in continental philosophy and the performing arts, the Catholic University of America Press publishes works that deal with Catholic theology and church history; the Distribution Services Division provides the University of Chicago Press's warehousing, customer service, related services. The Chicago Distribution Center began providing distribution services in 1991, when the University of Tennessee Press became its first client; the CDC serves nearly 100 publishers including Stanford University Press, University of Minnesota Press, University of Iowa Press, Temple University Press, Northwestern University Press, many others.
Since 2001, with development funding from the Mellon Foundation, the Chicago Digital Distribution Center has been offering digital printing services and the BiblioVault digital repository services to book publishers. In 2009, the CDC enabled the sales of electronic books directly to individuals and provided digital delivery services for the University of Michigan Press among others; the Chicago Distribution Center has partnered with an additional 15 presses including the University of Missouri Press, West Virginia University Press, publications of the Getty Foundation. Financially, university presses have come under growing pressure from their University sponsors to cut their losses. Only a few presses, such as Oxford, Harvard and Yale have endowments; the subsidies range from $150,000 to $500,000. Sales of academic books have been declining, however as University libraries cut back their purchases. At Princeton University Press in the 1960s, a typical hardcover monograph would sell 1660 copies in the five years after publication.
By 1984 that average had declined to 1003 and in after 2000 typical sales of monographs for all presses are below 500. University libraries
Temple Owls football
The Temple Owls football team represents Temple University in the sport of college football. The Temple Owls compete in the NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision as a member of the American Athletic Conference, they play their home games at Lincoln Financial Field in Pennsylvania. The Owls were a football-only member of the Big East Conference from 1991 until 2004. Temple was expelled from the league due to a lack of commitment to the football program from university officials. Temple played the 2005 and 2006 seasons as an independent before playing in the Mid-American Conference from 2007 to 2011. In March 2012, the Owls rejoined the Big East Conference, with football membership beginning in the 2012 season and all other sports beginning conference play in 2013; that same year, the conference was renamed the American Athletic Conference after several basketball-only schools split off to form a new conference that kept the Big East name. Temple is the last original Big East football member still in the American Athletic Conference, as well as the only former original BCS AQ conference team not to be a part of the power 5 conferences of the college football playoff.
Temple began playing organized football in 1894, a decade after the school was founded. Physical education instructor and basketball coach Charles M. Williams organized an 11-man squad that won their first game against Philadelphia Dental College. For its first few years, the football team played small schools and there are few records of its games; the Owls' modern era began in 1925. That was the year that Henry J. "Heinie" Miller was hired as head coach, for a time, the Owls were a regional power. In the 1927 season, after wildly mismatched victories over Blue Ridge College, Juniata and Washington College, Temple seemed to upgrade its schedule, their only loss that season came from Dartmouth, a 44-year long rivalry with Bucknell College began with Temple posting a 19–13 victory. To start the 1928 season, the Owls moved to Temple Stadium, won its first six home games in shutouts. Miller coached eight seasons and compiled a 50–15–8 record, with two notable victories over growing regional football power Penn State.
Following Miller's departure in 1933, the Owls made a national splash with the hiring of their next coach, the legendary Glenn "Pop" Warner. Warner had spent the previous 19 years at Pittsburgh and Stanford, winning three national championships, he ended his career at Temple. In 1934, the Owls went 7–0–2 in the regular season and were invited to play in the inaugural Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day, 1935, where they lost to undefeated Tulane, 20–14. In 1936, the Owls were ranked in the AP Poll in its first year for two weeks. In Warner's last game, Temple upset Florida 20–12, who were coached by future Temple coach Josh Cody. From the time Warner retired at the end of the 1938 season until 1963, the Owls experienced only 4 winning seasons. Warner's top assistant, Fred H. Swan, took over as head coach in 1939, he lasted one season before Temple hired SMU coach Ray Morrison. During this time, Temple had All-American and All-Star players; the Owls got off to a 6–1 start in 1941, defeating rivals Penn State and Villanova that season.
The 1945 season brought a 6–0 start and hopes of going to one of two bowl games: the Orange Bowl and the prestigious Cotton Bowl. However with a 7–1 season record, Temple did not receive either bid. After the 1940s, Temple's program began to decline; the team reached a nadir in the late 1950s, enduring a school record 21-game losing streak from the last four games of the 1957 season and through the entire 1958 and 1959 seasons. George Makris arrived as head coach to start the 1960 season and won his first game, against Kings Point. Makris restored competitiveness to the Owl program, compiling a 10-year record of 45–44–4. Makris' tenure coincided with Temple's 10 years in the University Division of the Middle Atlantic Conference, during which they won the 1967 conference championship. In 1966, led by a Temple single game record five touchdown passes by quarterback John Waller to receiver Jim Callahan, Markis brought "the Old Shoe" back to Broad Street by defeating Bucknell for the first time in 12 years.
After the 1969 season, the Owls became an independent again to upgrade their schedule and compete against the top teams in the East. Under new coach Wayne Hardin, who coached six years at Navy, Temple was up to the challenge. Temple won 14 straight games at one point. Temple played regular season games in Japan's Mirage Bowl twice, losing 35–32 to Grambling State in 1977 and beating Boston College 28–24 in 1978. In 1979, the Owls had a 10 -- the most wins in school history; the Owls opened the season with a 38–16 win at West Virginia and beat Rutgers and Syracuse. Temple's only losses during the regular season were to nationally ranked Penn State. In the game at Penn State, before a record-setting crowd, the Owls led 7–6 at the half. Following the 1979 season, the Owls defeated California 28–17 in the second Garden State Bowl; the crowd who witnessed Temple beat California was the largest in the short history of that bowl. Hardin led the Owls to an 80–52–3 record over 12 years. Under Hardin, the Owls were one of the more stable Eastern football powers and defeated local rivals West Virginia and Syracuse.
In the 1970s, Temple went 4–4 against West Virginia, 2–1 against Rutgers, 1–1 against Syracuse, 4–1–1 against Cincinnati and 2–0 against Connecticut. They came the closest to beating Penn State since th
The Liacouras Center is a 10,200-seat multi-purpose venue which opened in 1997 and was named "The Apollo of Temple". The arena was renamed in 2000 for Peter J. Liacouras, it is part of a $107 million, four-building complex along North Broad Street on the Temple University campus in North Philadelphia. The Liacouras Center is the largest indoor, public assembly venue in Philadelphia, north of City Hall. During the 1980s, Temple basketball coach John Chaney sought to raise the profile of the men's basketball program through aggressively scheduling top-tier, out of conference opponents; some programs, scoffed at the idea of playing at Temple's 3,900-seat on-campus arena, McGonigle Hall. Temple's President at the time, Peter J. Liacouras, supported the idea of a larger basketball facility in hopes of building Temple's national presence. Temple considered a site was purchased in 1988 for $7.3 million. The state of Pennsylvania awarded Temple $31.1 million in October 1992, despite disagreements between Chaney and then-City Council president John Street.
The project was approved with a January 25, 1996 groundbreaking. Two nationally recognized architectural firms designed the building: Vitetta Group of Philadelphia, Thompson Ventulett Stainback & Associates of Atlanta; the 340,000 sq ft venue opened in the 1997-98 season. The first game played was a 76-61 Temple win over #18 Fresno State; the venue was named The Apollo of Temple. The name changed to the Liacouras Center just prior to Liacouras' retirement on February 13, 2000; the Liacouras Center is Philadelphia's largest indoor venue north of City Hall and hosts home games for all of Temple men's basketball, along with some women's games. As of the end of the 2016-17 season, the Owls have amassed a 206-69 record in the building; the Esther Boyer Theater at the Liacouras Center is a small theater setup of 1,000 to 5,000 seats for more intimate presentations. The complex houses the Independence Blue Cross Recreation Center, which includes a gym, basketball court, racquetball courts, more; the IBC opened in the spring semester of 1998.
The fourth building in the complex is a 1,200-space parking garage. Besides hosting Temple basketball games, the Liacouras Center is a full entertainment arena featuring concerts, family shows, Philadelphia KiXX games, Philly Roller Derby bouts, a full range of concerts, dramatic presentations, family shows. Additionally, several high school graduations, as well as university graduations and convocation ceremonies, are held there; the Liacouras Center is managed by a subsidiary of Comcast-Spectacor. 50 Cent Fat Joe Fetty Wap Bow Wow and Omarion Kid Cudi Method Man & Redman Kanye West Wale Wiz Khalifa Big Sean Super Jam 2010, featuring Trey Songz and Ludacris T.
